Discover Fort Lauderdale

After booking your short-term rental in Fort Lauderdale, here's everything you need to know for your trip.

Located on the southern Atlantic coast of Florida, about 25 miles north of Miami, Fort Lauderdale has a population of around 180,000 and is a popular tourist destination, with seven miles of sunny beaches, year-round average temperature of 75°F and high-quality short-term rentals.

The region was originally home to the Tequesta Indians, and later the Seminole Indians, and then European settlers constructed the first Fort Lauderdale stockade in 1838. Following the Second Seminole War, the fort was abandoned for nearly 50 years, until a railroad was established in the area and new citizens began to arrive. In 1911, Fort Lauderdale became an official U.S. city, growing rapidly during the Florida real estate boom in the early 1920s.

Due to its location, it eventually became a major base for the U.S. Navy during World War II, and today is known as the “yachting capital of the world,” with 100 marinas sheltering more than 50,000 yachts.
